The all-new LEO has gotten it together for more music reviews; last week’s issue had reviews of Jonathan Glen Wood’s Ballad Of Jon by Syd Bishop; Thirty Spokes self-titled debut, also by Bishop and Ut Gret’s Ancestors’ Tale by Martin Z. Kasdan Jr.
It’s a bit hard to find the reviews on the web site, as the “Reviews” link produces a link that appears to be in chronological order, with the most recent reviews – sort of. The reviews are also undated.
In this week’s LEO, Marty Kasdan, Jr. has a piece on the universalist band Ut Gret, which has been playing around Louisville for years and years. The title of the piece is “Ut Gret Is Far Out,” which is an understatement.
Marty also has a longer piece on Pat Metheny and the Unity Group.
